A 120 Year Generation?

Q. I thought I’d add something to consider regarding a generation. I have looked at 70 years as the date of a generation. Also 40 years etc… The Bible tells us that no man shall live more than 120 years (after the period of the flood) and in fact that is the age of Moses when God took him. So in my estimation the very last date would be 1948 + 120 years or at the extreme latest 1967 + 120 years.  Your thoughts?

The Temple Or The Body Of Believers?

Q. I have read the following on a web site and am wondering if the translations are correct.  “There are two different Greek words that are translated as “temple” in English. One word “hieron” is used by Paul when referring to an actual building made with wood and stones. The other word “naos” is used when referring to the spiritual temple of God which refers to His people. The word “naos” is the one used in this 2 Thessalonians 2:4 verse, and therefore is NOT talking about a physical temple.”

Who Is Speaking In Proverbs 8?

Q. Who, really, is speaking in Proverbs Chapter 8?  The scripture seems to suggest it is “wisdom” doing the talking, but isn’t wisdom a condition — a state of being — as opposed to an entity?  Whoever is doing the talking seems to be corporeal.  It’s a beautiful chapter, but I am a bit baffled as to who is doing this oration.  Thank you for the wonderful work you do.

Dinosaurs In The Book Of Job?

Q. I’ve been on the net studying dinosaurs in the bible and it appears that the “Kronosaurus” (leviathan) is talked about in Job 41, Isiah 27:1, and Psalm 104:25,26 and the “Brachiosaurus” (behmoth) is talked about in Job 40:15-24.  If these animals are dinosaurs, how could they have escaped the flood? What are your thoughts on this?

Mary’s Genealogy

Q. I’ve recently read your article printed in ‘Prophecy Update’ regarding Messianic prophecy in the O.T.  You mentioned that Matthew’s genealogy traces Joseph’s line, while Luke’s traces that of Mary, mother of Jesus.  But I’m struggling to see how Luke shows the line of Mary – albeit v.11 mentions Nathan, David’s brother.
But how does that relate to Mary?

Can Children Be Lost?

Q. If you read Matthew 18 : 6 and 14 you will know that the little ones among us need to have faith in order to be saved and that they could also be lost. I believe there is not one being in the entire mankind who doesn’t need our Lord Jesus to save him from being condemned, even the little ones need salvation otherwise they could be lost. Moreover read also Psalms 51 : 5 to see that you become a sinner since the time you are conceived in your mother’s womb.

Will God The Father Have A Glorified Body?

Q. Many blessings to you for your ministry!  My question is Jesus has a glorified body from the resurrection.  We will all have these bodies at the Rapture at least the believers will.  I was told that in heaven God will have no body.  I would think he would have a Glorified body also but maybe not. I mean you have the Holy Trinity. I guess I have just always assumed the Father &  Son would have glorified bodies and then you have the spirit part of the Triune as the unseen always working for the glory of God. What do you think?

How Does The River Flow?

Q. I have been listening to your mp3 series on Revelation for two days and I have to take a little break to try to work out an idea that has cropped up.  If a river flows out of the temple mount and runs in two directions  and one of the directions is toward the Med. Sea, then I can’t see how the Med Sea flow into the river won’t change the direction back toward the other end.  The other end of that flow would be the Dead Sea.  Isn’t the Dead Sea way below sea level?  And if so, won’t the water try to reach it’s own level which would be the level of the Med Sea?

Paul’s Authority

Q. Re: 2 Corinthians 13:1-10.  I hope all is well and could you please explain what Paul meant by “I will not spare them— since you seek proof that Christ is speaking in me.”…. and…. “that when I come I may not have to be severe in my use of the authority that the Lord has given me for building up and not for tearing down.”

What exactly was Paul able to do in his authority? And do we also have this authority in Christ as Paul did? And how severe could he be with this authority? I realize that in part it has to do with the people sinning, but it appears that Paul has reached the boiling point of “no more grace for you, now it’s the power of God time”. This passage for some odd reason reminds me of Clark Kent turning into Superman!

Should I Take The Supplement?

Q. There is a command from God somewhere in the first few books of the Bible not to drink the blood of any animal.  I can’t remember the exact place.  Anyhow, I purchase protein powder for convenience and some brands carry a small amount of “bovine plasma protein”, which is literally blood protein from a cow (powdered, of course).  It is full of immunoglobins and agents beneficial for the intestines.  Breast milk also contains some similar chemicals.  I’ve never consumed it and didn’t want to because of this command.
